Hardly Strictly Young brought together more than 30 movers and shakers in the independent and entrepreneurial media world. These individuals were chosen because they aren't necessarily at the "centers of power" but rather are building their own centers of power or influence. They are change agents. The two day event centered around the Knight Foundation's commission on the information needs of communities. Our charge: through a roundtable discussion and various breakouts this group will make concrete suggestions, from our unique perspective, for next steps the Foundation and others can do take to strengthen the information ecosystem of communities.
